Diversity in Action
Plunkett Cooney has taken its diversity initiative beyond the walls of the firm and directly to our clients and the communities we serve.
We recognized that many of our clients were implementing programs and strategies to attract and retain a diverse group of employees. Our attorneys approached some of these organizations and met with their human resources executives and diversity directors to exchange information about our programs. The exploration proved to be mutually beneficial with the participants identifying key takeaways to enhance their respective diversity efforts.
Another firm client seeking to begin its own diversity initiative actually contacted Plunkett Cooney for assistance. Partnering with our own diversity consultant, the former chair of the firm’s Diversity Committee assisted the client with designing and implementing its own program. Today, the firm has a formal diversity initiative in place for its workforce.
